90th Academy Awards – Nominations

Yes, it’s that time of the year were we all get excited or get angry at the Academy Awards! Despite being an antiquated film show, we still cannot help but wrap our emotions around the excitement, the glitz and the glam, and charge forward with our utmost passion for the films we have fallen in love with this past year. And now we have the full list of nominations. It’s very thrilling.

Of course, there is a high expectation that this awards will follow the same formula as the SAG Awards or Golden Globes. Naturally, everyone who is voting are the same people so it’s sad that there are no surprises? Really, it’s time award season got inventive, different, and moved passed clear Oscar Bait titles. I’m actually furious that Streep has yet another nomination. Surely her inclusion would mean that someone else was lacking?

Now onto the film nominations. The Shape of Water leads the way with 13 nominations which is exciting but the industry does not waver from their usually plans so Three Billboards, Call Me By Your Name, Get Out, and The Shape of Water all have nominations under the belt.

The exciting thing is that Greta Gerwig and Jordan Peele FINALLY have their nominations! And we literally pumped the air because we are so excited.

So yes, it is predictable as anything and, yes, we’re going to get a good, cheesy ceremony out of it. But isn’t it time to shake it up?
